GEA Celebrates Milestone: Commissioning of State-of-the-Art Business Resource Centres

On February 15, 2024, a momentous occasion unfolded as Honourable Kobina Tahir Hammond, the Minister of Trade and Industry, inaugurated State-of-the-Art Business Resource Centres (BRCs) in Akropong-Akuapim, Eastern Region, and Dodowa, Greater Accra Region. These BRCs, a testament to collaborative efforts between the Rural Enterprises Programme (REP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), represent a significant leap towards decentralizing business advisory services across Ghana.

Designed to cater to the needs of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), these newly established BRCs are poised to become hubs of innovation and support for entrepreneurs. Offering a wide array of services ranging from comprehensive business development assistance to investment facilitation and export promotion, these centres are set to revolutionize the entrepreneurial landscape, particularly for (1 District, 1 Factory) 1D1F projects.

The commissioning ceremony witnessed the presence of esteemed dignitaries including Mr. Kwasi Attah-Antwi, the National Director of REP, Mrs. Kosi Yankey-Ayeh, CEO of GEA, Mr. Sammy Awuku, Director General of the National Lotteries Authority, as well as Hon. Barima Asiedu-Larbi, Municipal Chief Executive for Akuapim North. Additionally, local chiefs and other stakeholders graced the occasion, underscoring the collective commitment towards fostering economic empowerment and prosperity.

These BRCs are part of a larger vision to establish 67 centres nationwide by the end of the year. With 37 centres already operational and an additional 19 commissioned, the momentum is palpable. 11 more centres are slated to follow suit, reflecting the government's unwavering dedication to nurturing entrepreneurship and driving economic development at the grassroots level.

As we celebrate this milestone, we invite entrepreneurs, innovators, and changemakers from all corners of Ghana to leverage the resources and opportunities offered by these BRCs. Together, let us harness the power of entrepreneurship to build a brighter, more prosperous future for our nation. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to empower businesses and transform lives through the Ghana Enterprises Agency.
